Which debt mutual fund can be a good alternative to savings bank account

I have a query related to lump sum investment in debt funds. Per many articles by investment experts, it appears that liquid or money market funds are one of the best alternatives to invest your extra money when compared to savings bank account to get higher returns. With that thought in mind, I am thinking to use the debt fund way to invest 5 lacs for a tenure of 6 months to 1 year, the duration could be even longer as well. Below is my strategy - 2 lacs in Money Market Fund or Liquid Fund (ABSL Money Manager Growth or Reliance Liquid Fund) 1.5 lacs in Medium to Long duration Debt Fund (Reliance Income Growth Plan) 1.5 lacs in Gilt or Corporate bond Fund (SBI Magnum Gilt Fund) Rather than keeping the entire 5 lacs in a liquid fund, would it be wise to use the above strategy to diverse my investment? Please advise?
